It seems like it was yesterday when I first met the masterminds behind New York’s most iconic gay brand, Nasty Pig. During the summer of 2012 I had the pleasure to interview these guys for the blog.
As soon as I walked into their studio – in the middle of the Garment District – I felt an amazing energy… The same energy (and effort) they put into creating a unique product for their sexy loyal customers.
One of the things they told me back then was their plan to move into a bigger store. Well, well, well… it’s been only two years since then and they finally opened up their brand-new HQ.
Located at 259 West 19th Street (just four doors down from their previous location), The Nasty Pig Flagship Store is a fun and modern world-class shopping experience, and the best place for customers to experience the brand.
Throughout the building exposed brick walls and concrete floors reflect the rawness of the brand while sleek and contemporary furniture along with their little bondage piggy’s match the edginess of their clothes.
Giving that these ‘bad boys’ are big on the New York City gay nightlife, it comes as no surprise that the venue is fully equipped with a sound system and beautiful back deck that will serve as a playground for the furry clientele.
Last Friday at the opening party we got to experience the shop! The guests and I enjoyed complimentary champagne and tunes from DJ Corey Craig.
Among the attendees were CEO David Lauterstein, Creative Director Fred Kearney, Fashion Designer (and my longtime crush) Matthew Camp, nightlife personality Shame Less and former Sales Manager Jay Roth. – Congratulations on the opening guys, I had a freaking good time and I can’t wait to see what else you have in store for us! (pun intended).
